I recently purchased a couple of GW's new Sternguard boxes, because they looked awesome and I really liked the flexibility they permitted compared to the old box. Each box contains 5 Sternguards and about 30 weapon options...so I ordered home a big pile of magnets and went to work.
It's not that I don't like my old Sternguards that I made a while ago, but these just looked too awesome not to build and paint.
I magnetized all the weapons in one of the boxes and then the combi weapons from the second. Most of the marines have magnetized arms as well.
I can't wait to begin painting these, but I probably need to paint some more Space Hulk figures first :-D but I just wanted to show them off.
Beside the new Sternguards I also wanted to make a Honor Guards for my Chapter Master Pedro Kantor. I did paint Kantor a while back, but since my skills and techniques have improved/changed since I decided to get a new one :-D
These are based of GW's Masters of the Chapter box, which contains 4 very unique and awesome Space Marine veterans with different Power Weapons. I converted them with some bits from E-bay and my Sternguard boxes. The standard bearer is just assembled from different bits I got from E-bay, a mix of normal GW and Forgeworld bits.
I'm still missing an arm for my standard bearer, but hopefully it will be in the mailbox soon.
